Stone leather is mainly composed of big stone collected from deep mountains and processed by artificial leather. The surface of the leather is made with natural grain. The texture can be modified according to the needs of use, and the hand feel is comfortable. The finished product can be widely used Such as leather sofas, leather chairs, leather beds, leather bags, leather whips, leather gloves and other simulation leather products. The generalized stone simulation leather products also include leather products such as leather garments, leather shoes and leather goods. Among them, leather goods also include many, such as, this book, universal manual, manager's bag, briefcase, luggage, wallets, key bags and other simulation leather goods. Its characteristics are: environmental protection, biodegradable, recyclable, long-lasting, more durable than ordinary leather works, no wear and tear for 8 years of continuous use.
The stone simulation leather is suitable for Class A leather standard, with fine texture, mellow color, clear texture, non-toxic and tasteless, and can be widely used in the manufacture and use of leather products: electronic products, furniture, automotive products, industrial products, leather shoes, leather clothing and leather Japanese products and various product packaging.
The demand for leather products from mankind continues to expand, but the earth's resources on which mankind depends are gradually disappearing in the over-development of mankind. The expansion of the application of leather products directly affects the destruction of the ecological environment, and the killing of natural living organisms by humans. The global ecological chain is deteriorating. At the same time, leather products are increasingly expensive in the supply shortage. In order to meet consumer demand and protect creatures and the earth, the birth of stone simulation leather has better adapted to the global consumer development trend. In addition to the application characteristics of natural leather, it can better reflect texture, taste and life.
Due to the wide range of applications and the increase in personal disposable income, the demand for leather in the market has been boosted. Leather with the name of “the first man-made material” has entered the ranks of luxury goods from the necessary products, especially in developed countries. By 2015, the European leather market is expected to reach $29.5 billion. The leather industry is highly fragmented and has a diverse product portfolio. Quality, design, flexibility, adaptability and quick feedback on market changes are the hallmarks of the European leather industry. More and more retailers and brand owners have begun to pay attention to product traceability and how to solve environmental problems. As far as the status quo is concerned, the Asian-Pacific region has dominated the global production of leather, while Latin America has represented the fastest-growing market in the world.
China is one of the world's largest leather and animal hide producing countries and needs large quantities of imported raw materials and high-end leather. Although China's leather factories have sprung up, the production demand for high-end hide leather products has not been met. At the same time, India is working hard to build itself into a leader in the global leather market, and major brands are exploring development opportunities in India.
In Asia, leather production accounts for 53% of the world's total production, raw material hides account for 40% of the world's total production, and Europe, represented by Italy, Spain, France, and Portugal, accounts for the world's total production of leather. %, raw material leather production accounts for 18% of the world's total production; North American and Central American leather production accounts for 10% of the world's total production, raw material production accounts for 17% of the world's total production; South America leather The production volume accounts for 8% of the world's total production, and the output of raw hides accounts for 13% of the world's total production.
In the European region, advanced production technologies and equipment are used to manufacture leather products of higher quality, grade and quantity, and they are highly profitable. However, with the increasingly stringent environmental protection legislation in Europe, labor costs have continued to grow, especially since the raw material leather supply countries in the past began to restrict the export of raw materials, the leather industry in Europe has begun to decline, the leather production, the leather trade situation is more and more Severe, the stone-simulated leather should be environmentally friendly, wear-resistant, beautiful, soft and easy to obtain. It is gradually favored by leather manufacturers all over the world and has become active on the world stage.
With the expansion of the market demand for leather, the original animal leather can no longer meet the demand, and the original PU and other leathers have restricted the development of the leather market due to different degrees of problems. The appearance of stone simulation leather has filled the market vacancy in time.
The stone artificial leather introduces advanced production lines and technicians with professional knowledge. It uses natural stone as the basic raw material and is processed. The environmentally-friendly leather obtained has the advantages of non-toxic, recyclable and easy to be decomposed, and does not produce poisonous gas. Or pollute the water source. The product structure is simple, energy saving, emission reduction, can effectively protect the forest environment, help promote the development of social environmental protection, and protect the human living environment.
Stone simulation leather is widely used in clothing, footwear, furniture, performance decoration, packaging and other fields due to its bright color, long-wearing, pure texture and high degree of simulation. It fully meets the high demand of human leather products.
The stone simulation leather has created a new milestone in the revolution of human environmental protection. It has solved the problems of the unprotected and easily-destroyed deposits of traditionally used PU leather and effectively promoted the development of synthetic leather.
